It’s the end of an era.
In all likelihood, this will be John Terry’s final season at Chelsea—the team he joined as a 14-year-old—after club management told him they would not renew his contract at the end of the 2015-16 Premier League campaign.
Terry, 35, is the most iconic Chelsea captains in club history, and has won a number of honours—including four Premier League titles, fiv FA Cups, one Champions League and the Europa League.
After coming through Chelsea’s youth team, he made his senior team debut in 1998 and was appointed captain in 2004. In total, he’s made 696 appearances for the London club. But he’s shown his age this season and has been far off his best form while Chelsea has slumped towards the bottom of the table.
Chelsea issued a statement saying there was still some chance Terry could be back next season. But chances are good he’ll be at another club for the 2016-17 season.
All of which raises the big question: What’s next for John Terry?
